Toilet Paper Roll Painting.....A DIY project

We had a rare rainy day here yesterday....I love a good rainy day, they always make me feel normal for staying in my PJ's all day ;)
And....I love finding a good project to do on a day like that too....










This is one of those super easy projects that just makes me smile! 

I started with three 10x10 canvases and printed pictures of my cutie pie kiddos


I painted two of the canvases with flat interior paint, and used an acrylic craft paint in white to paint the other. 
Then....I grabbed a toilet paper roll....dipped into the paint.....and started painting!


Too easy, right?? I really love the look of this, some of the circles ended up being irregular which {in my humble opinion} added more character ;)

Once the canvases were all painted up, I used some vintage photo corners to hold the pictures


I like the idea of being able to change up the pictures so this was the best choice for me...but you could always add a layer of Mod Podge too







ooooohhhhh...I just love those sweet faces :)

So, what do you think?
I can't wait to find more things to paint with my toilet paper rolls!
